Bristol-born Yuup offers local businesses an innovative way to engage employees

18th May 2022

Employee engagement is an efficient business strategy. Happy, engaged, and resilient staff is the ultimate goal, but it’s easier said than done.

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution to employee engagement. It’s a mix of rewards, recognition, wellbeing, and community-building. Yuup provides a bespoke solution to each of these concerns surrounding employee engagement:

  • Team-building and experience days/nights
  • Personal rewards for big wins and target achievement: experience vouchers or specially-selected experiences
  • Wellbeing support: confidence-building masterclasses, sound baths, reiki, yoga, fitness and nutrition classes, art therapy, meditation classes, crafting experiences
  • Birthday, anniversary, leaving, and Christmas gifts

Some examples of the 600+ local experiences you can find on Yuup:

  • Pottery and pints at the pub
  • Rum-tasting masterclass in Stokes Croft
  • Creative journaling for mental health workshop
  • Bounce, beer and pizza at an indoor trampoline park

How can Yuup help businesses?

Employees are the heart of your business and the reason you exist. They’re also a significant investment, so it makes sense to invest in them as well.

Yuup offers a solution for employee engagement that goes beyond traditional perks such as free lunches or flexible working hours. 

Based on research into what employees want from their employers, Yuup provides businesses with an innovative way to engage their teams by giving them recognition and rewarding them with things to do that are enriching and personal whilst stimulating the local economy and supporting small businesses.
